East Texas Professional Credit Union (ETPCU) was notified of a text scam targeting debit card users. Members have reported receiving a text indicating that a debit card transaction was declined, and the debit card has been temporarily blocked. Recipients of this text are asked to call a Toll-Free number in order to verify their ETPCU debit card information. These texts ARE NOT from ETPCU. We will NEVER text you and ask you to call a number to verify your debit card information.

If you receive this text, please DO NOT RESPOND and delete it immediately. If you have already called the number and provided information, please contact a Member Service Representative at 903-323-1238 in order to have your card blocked immediately.

  • Do not respond to unsolicited requests (of any kind) for personally identifiable information including your social security number, PIN, account number, driver license number, or passwords.
  • Never reply to unsolicited emails or texts or click on the attachments or links until you verify the request is legitimate.

  • If you believe a phone call could be a phishing scam, hang up immediately and verify that the person works for the company they claim to work for by calling them back through an official phone number. For ETPCU, you may call us at 903-323-0230 or 800-256-5009.
  • If anyone asks you to confirm, verify or update your account, credit card or billing information it could be fraudulent.
